Bonjour!

Je m'appelle Madame Kolstad et j'enseigne les niveux 1 et 2 au lycée Sud-Ouest. 

I have been a French teacher in Minneapolis for 17 years and am excited to be at Southwest! 

Please see my linked Course Description for more information.

My e-mail is Kim.Kolstad@mpls.k12.mn.us

Of note: my assessments and gradebook are set up in the four modalities of language learning and are reflected in our weekly lesson plans. Formative (ongoing) assessments happen most days of the week. Friday will be the day for any Summative (unit final) assessments.

Here is what typical weeks will look like:

lundi- reading

mardi-listening

mercredi-speaking

jeudi-writing

vendredi-art/games/assessment

 

 

Here are some great links for language learning support and basic review of vocabulary and grammar structures. (Remember: With language learning you never "don't have any homework")
